Dear Ones,

MY ‘CRIMINOLOGY’ BACKGROUND: CO-AUTHOR OF A CRIME AVOIDANCE ‘HOW TO’ BOOK SOME YEARS AGO

As you may know, some long years ago, using the pen name Cricket Clagett, I co-authored a book, now out of print, entitled “1001 Ways to Avoid Getting Mugged, Murdered, Robbed, Raped, and Ripped Off” …

Citation: “1001 Ways to Avoid Getting Mugged, Murdered, Robbed, Raped, or Ripped Off,” by Vivo Bennett and Alice Clagett, published by Mason / Charter, New York 1977

It looks like there is a reprint being ‘ripped off’ now … go figure! ..

THOUGHTS FROM AN AMATEUR SLEUTH

Since then, I have had a casual, ‘amateur sleuth’ interest in criminology. Lately, I have been interested in ‘crime makeovers’. (You can search that phrase on my blog for what I have come up with.)

From time to time, I will see two mugshots (facial photos), and ask my family and friends: Do you think these are the same person? I have noticed they say: No! They’re two different people.

I find this interesting, and I wonder why they arrive at these conclusions. For myself, when I analyze two mugshots, I notice that I also make snap judgments, such as …

Gosh, do these two people look different!

Then I think: Well, but they somehow feel like the same person. This is the intuitive in me speaking I guess. I get what they call, in the detective novels, a ‘hunch’ (as opposed to a ‘lead’ … which I figure must be more substantial).

I know there are all kinds of ways to alter facial features and body statistics so as to avoid detection by camera at a crime scene, and also to avoid criminal database matchups. I have put a little about this in another blog,…

MUGSHOTS: MATCHING HEAD SIZE AND THEN ANALYZING EACH FACIAL FEATURE

So then, I came up with the notion of sizing the bottom of the chin and the top of the head (as opposed to the top of the hair) on each mugshot the same … and then going facial feature by facial feature. For instance, I might first observe the nose, then the eyes, then the eyebrows, then the pattern of the facial hair, then the ears, and so on. And then I might make a tally of likely matched features. And then I would decide the likelihood of a match (even though date of birth, weight, social security number, and even height might vary).

Using this method, I considered these people likely to be the same person …

I note in the last mugshot, the higher hairline made matchup more challenging. The determining factor, for me, with these mugshots, was the disparity in the shape of the two eyes.

MUGSHOTS: TAKING AGE DIFFERENCES INTO CONSIDERATION

Age can also make it challenging to match mugshots. For instance, here are a young and an older mugshot of Jeffards Roy Byington. The age disparity does make these mugshots look different, but, I feel, not too different …

MUGSHOTS: DIFFERENCES CAUSED BY HEAD TILT

I have also found that when a person looks slightly down or up, when a photo is taken, then the photos look very different, and a matchup becomes more challenging because of that. The middle vertical row of faces in these artistic sketches clearly illustrate the differences that head tilt causes …

Image: “Head Tilt and Dominance (IMAGE),” Association for Psychological Science … https://media.eurekalert.org/multimedia_prod/pub/web/203601_web.jpg ..

Some of the most notable of these are the length of the forehead, the nose, and the chin. The eyebrows, eyes, mouth, and ears also look very different, do you not think?

MUGSHOTS: WIDTH OR FULLNESS OF THE FACE DUE TO WEIGHT GAIN, STEROIDS, BOTOX, OR ADDICTIONS

I have also noticed that a change in width or fullness of the face can make it look very different.

ON CROOKS WHO IMPERSONATE THE SECRET SERVICE

This section opens up a can of worms, I feel, to do with criminals putting fake criminal information online so as to ‘diss’ or ‘take down’ each other.

You know, criminals are always on the lookout to make themselves appear to be imminently respectable; they are very into ‘false authority’. It would be very like a criminal gang to pretend to be the FBI, and to issue a false FBI or CIA badge, which for all I know may even be purchasable online, to their most rogue operators.

For instance, compare this real FBI badge …

Image: “The badge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),” in English Wikipedia, 1 May 2013 … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbols_of_the_Federal_Bureau_of_Investigation#/media/File:Badge_of_a_Federal_Bureau_of_Investigation_special_agent.png … public domain

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbols_of_the_Federal_Bureau_of_Investigation#/media/File:Badge_of_a_Federal_Bureau_of_Investigation_special_agent.png … public domain

… with this fake badge available online for about $50 …

Image: “US FBI Special Agent Badge Solid Copper Replica Movie Props,” at Coin Souvenir … https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0011/9527/8380/products/20190904_162727_140_1024x1024@2x.jpg?v=1581056062 ..

To me the movie prop looks quite like the real McCoy; what do you think about it?

I feel that law enforcement everywhere must be on the lookout for these sorts of hijinks and shenanigans by crime gang members. WikiHow has valuable information on how to know if someone purporting to be a secret service agent really is one. The long and the short of it is, one never knows these days about credentials.

I recall several years ago two men came to my street and broke into the Chatsworth Nature Preserve next door. When I accosted them, the driver of the vehicle said he was a law enforcement ‘detective’, and that he had gotten the ‘go ahead’ from the man in charge of my local LAPD station.

I knew that it was a woman who was in charge of my local LAPD station, so I knew he was lying. And in addition, when he showed me his badge, I could see it was a fake badge, not the LAPD police badge or any variant thereof.

As I recall, when I looked into it, I found that these fake law enforcement badges were a dime a dozen. People are apparently always coming up with these fake IDs.

It is a hard one, though: When I saw the badge the one burglar had, I figured the man might have a gun too, just as true-to-life detectives do. So I figured it was best to just let them make their escape … which they did. They just drove away, and got off scot-free.

That goes to show the power of false authority; the power that criminals know and love, and use with great aplomb against unsuspecting law-abiding people such as those of you reading my blog.

‘CRIME CLUSTERS’ ON BACKGROUND ALERT: CRIMINAL OBFUSCATION OR CYBERCRIME?

As a casual user of internet background search services, I sometimes run across what might be termed ‘crime clusters’ by first and last name (with variant middle names) This makes me wonder if the middle names and other police report statistics might have been misrepresented in some way, possibly by the suspects, or maybe through cybercrime?

CONCLUSION

Well, dear reader, it is up to you to figure out these sorts of puzzles. And puzzles they are! For there is nothing that an outlaw likes to do more, than to elude a posse! I wish you the best of luck in your own amateur sleuth endeavors!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

I heard the wildest astral rumor, and it upsets me enough to get it out there.Whether there is any truth in it at all, I guess time will tell.

ASTRAL RUMORS ABOUT RELEASE OF FELONS

Anyway, what is ‘on the astral airwaves’ is that large cities all over America … I guess that would include Los Angeles … have not enough money to keep our felons housed in prisons, and that hardened criminals are being released into the mainstream of society, to whatever towns will take them, sometimes crossing state boundaries to do so.

Crime Makeovers?

I heard that they are getting ‘crime makeovers’ … which include fake IDs, alterations in hair color, facial surgery, gender change surgery, apparent cultural or racial changeups, fingerprint changes, and for the most hardened criminals, height enhancement surgery, so that their previous identities will be unknown when they are placed in society, and so that they won’t match up with law enforcement’s criminal databases.

Fake CIA Credentials? Fake IRS Credentials?

I heard, on the astral airs, that these released felons are getting hold of fake credentials, including fake drivers licenses and stolen credit cards … but more significantly, fake CIA, FBI, Secret Service, and IRS cards … and that these fake credentials are authentic looking enough to fool most ordinary people, and most importantly, people in banks … who are in charge of safe deposit boxes … and law enforcement agencies in towns that seldom see Secret Service or IRS involvement with the local community.

If True: Request for Secret Service and IRS Web Page to Help Citizens and Law Enforcement Determine if CIA, FBI, and IRS Identity Badges Are Fake or Not

For this latter issue, if it is true, I suggest the Secret Service and the IRS put up web pages letting everyone know how these agencies work with local law enforcement and with the banks, and what rights citizens have, in order to discover if they are being approached by true people, representing government authority, or by released felons.

As budget allows, I hope these agencies will also reach out to local law enforcement and to banks and other financial institutes nationwide, in an educational effort in this regard. An email campaign might be cost-effective in this regard.

Ex-Con Hirers as Unintentional Drug Distribution Focal Points?

I heard also that the companies that hire these released cons are in danger of becoming involved in the drug trade, because that is the stock in trade of the felons. If true, I surmise this might take place, initially, under covers, amongst the employed, released felons.

Ex-Con Hirers as Focal Points of Rape, Drug Use, Murder, and HIV Infection

Habits of rape, drug use and murder, and incidence of HIV infection, have a tendency to fan out from felon rehab focus points, according to the ‘astral airs’. Thus it seems possible that, with time, drug distribution done surreptitiously by released felons at their employment focal points, might eventually involve some members of the employing groups, as they might be susceptible to being raped, getting the HIV virus, becoming addicted, and needing extra money for medical care and to sustain their drug habits. This is only a hypothesis.

A Wild Astral Rumor: Small Town ‘Penal Colonies’ Preying on Tourists

Again on the astral airs, and much to my perturbation, I have very persistently heard, for several years now, that some small towns across America are formally agreeing to accept released felons .. with an understanding, either tacit or verbally expressed, that brothels will be established that offer the townsmen free sex. In exchange for which they will ‘look the other way’ when the felons prey upon tourists.

That there may be tacit agreements amongst townspeople or small town law enforcement that these released felons may prey up the underprivileged … for instance, the homeless and people who are culturally or racially different from the norm in these towns … also penniless young people who migrate in, for instance, for the ski season … at a kill rate of one underprivileged person a month. This then, may ratchet up to a kill a week, due to the enthusiasm of the released felons, and then remonstrances issued, and the kill rate lowered.

‘Madeover’ Street Gangs: Spiritual Cults That Kill?

Also that the felons are establishing ‘made over’ street gangs … what you might call ‘whitewashed’ killing cults or modern-day outlaw gangs, that look upper middle class, very spiffed up, maybe even highly spiritual in appearance.

Request for CIA Tourist Advisories, If Rumors Prove True

If there, in fact, are such towns, and if the problem is as severe as it seems through intuition and the ‘sixth sense’ … then in that case, I suggest the CIA issue tourist advisories for these towns … in the same way that the CIA Factbook online used to issue tourist advisories for nations given over to violence.

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS TO THE NEED TO RELEASE FELONS

I also wonder whether there might be better solutions for the release of felons. For instance …

Life without Parole for 60-Count Rap Sheets and Higher

Perhaps the most hardened criminals … the type that have 60-count rap sheets, for instance … ought to be denied parole altogether.

No ‘Crime Makeover’ for 60-Count Rap Sheet Criminals

If parole cannot be denied, then I hope the government, and felon rehab industries, will not target these hardened criminals for complete ‘crime makeovers’ and Identity remakes. I realize there is a sentiment, on the astral airs, amongst the rehab industries, that these hardened criminals ‘have no chance’ unless their identity is disguised, so that they can get a fresh start.

My own point of view is quite the opposite. I feel a ‘crime makeover’ for the hardened criminal disguises their criminal tendencies, not only towards members of the communities they join, but also towards the well-meaning but easily duped industries that hire these men and women, and also … when they receive fake CIA and IRS credentials … they can deceive local law enforcement as well.

Rehab Released Felons Far from Towns

Here are some other possibilities:

  • Why not hire released felons out to the lumberjack industry
  • or the ranching or agricultural industries, with house arrest bracelets on them?

Let’s Vet Whether Rehab Ranches and Farms Really Exist. Also: Are They Housing the Felons Nightly?

Along those lines … and again, purely clair astrally … I heard that some felons may have been released to a ‘farm’ that does not exist, into dormitories on the ‘farm’ that are not lived in, but only used as brothels. Is there any chance this might be true?

Probably not, but still, unscheduled visits to industries hiring released felons seem to me a good reasonable idea. Aerial surveillance through Google is also a possibility; for instance, on the ‘farm’ in question, is there acreage for farming? Can the felons’ house arrest bracelets be detected there in the evenings? And so on …

Wildest Possible Astral Rumor: Mob Bosses Murdering Felon Employment Bosses And Converting Rehab to ‘Crime 202’ (?!!)

There is an even wilder astral rumor out there to the effect that the appointed overseers bosses at prison rehab focal points in our communities nationwide may have been, in some instances, murdered, and replaced with mob bosses who have assumed the names of their done-in predecessors. Then turning the operations from rehab to ‘Crime 202’ (!??) It seems to me it would be relatively easy, at least in this case, to determine the truth of the rumor, or lack thereof.

Island Isolation for Released Felons …

  • Or maybe, in the most difficult instances, very hardened felons could be confined to an island with airlift in of supplies?

I recall that England exported its sex workers and criminals to Australia in times past, for instance. In those days, England may have had financial constraints similar to those facing American urban areas today.

In the most difficult of circumstances, to prevent predation upon the American people, and to help halt the spread of the HIV pandemic to our schoolchildren, this island restraint technique might be worth considering.

THE PROSPECT OF NORMAL LIFE FOR SCHOOLCHILDREN INFECTED WITH HIV

It is important to keep in mind that schoolchildren infected with the HIV virus … taking into consideration the current state of Western medicine with regard to this disease … cannot expect to live more than into their 20s or 30s. And that those years may be lived, apparently without the option of having children, because of the toll that the virus would otherwise take on their health while under the physical stress of pregnancy.

Of course, prospects for our HIV-infected children are changing, day by day, for the better, and I have the highest hopes for them. But in the meantime, during the next 5 years, I feel it is absolutely critical to do our best to halt the spread of HIV to our schoolchildren in urban areas. That way the American workforce of 10 years from now can remain strong enough to keep our economy on an even keel.

One very important consideration in this regard is to keep hardened criminals away from our children; this is because prison life, sex work, and drug use among hardened criminals leads to the likelihood of HIV infection. Further, rape habits developed before or during prison life lead to the likelihood of rape of our children by released felons, and their infection by HIV.

  • Because of promiscuity promoted by the mass media,
  • and subsequent peer pressure in the schools,
  • and the sexual habits of our very young schoolchildren,
  • and their being targeted for predation by the drug industry,
  • and the unwillingness of parents to test their children for the presence of the HIV virus due to the immense social stigma involved …

… the very great likelihood exists that if one schoolchild is infected with HIV by a hardened criminal, most of his or her classmates will soon be infected as well.

This trend must be stopped, by whatever means the parents feel appropriate, and as soon as possible, for the welfare of all our schoolchildren, and of our society ongoing. I feel certain that PTAs across the country will find the means to implement the necessary changes.

RESEARCH

I did a little research online this morning, and could not find corroboration for these very out-there, off-putting astral rumors. I am hoping that, although the problem of rehabbing felons is clearly real, the rumors will prove to have no substance. Of course, there is always the chance some small part of it might have some truth to it, which is why I am putting these rumors before the public eye.

Through my research this morning, I got some interesting leads and statistics on the general topic of rehabbing felons. (There is quite a bit more online.) …

Recidivism

According to the National Institute of Justice, the rate of recidivism is 76% within 5 years … Link: “Recidivism,” by the National Institute of Justice …  https://www.nij.gov/topics/corrections/recidivism/pages/welcome.aspx ..

Violent Crime on the Rise

Violent crime is on the rise in the United States … in 2016, there was an 11% rise in homicides: Link: “Violent Crime Is On the Rise in U.S. Cities,” by Josh Sanburn and David Johnson, 30 January 2017 … http://time.com/4651122/homicides-increase-cities-2016/ ..

Handheld Psychosis (‘Virtual Psychosis’) Among Children

Intuitively, I feel that handheld use amongst young children may be a seminal factor in the turning of our youth to lives of crime. Apparently, handheld use in early childhood leads to mental illness, aggression, addiction and ‘digital dementia’:

Link: “10 Reasons To Ban Handheld Devices for Children under 12,” by Chris Rowan, 3 March 2014 … http://sproutingknowledge.com/10-reasons-to-ban-handheld-devices-for-children-under-12/ ..

If you are a parent, please consider this compelling information. It may make a world of difference in the future of your children.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Ode to a Scarlet Varlet
A Story by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
24 February 2018

 

You know, some people say that, when a criminal pays,
by going to jail, and then gets out again,
that they’ve paid their debt to society,
and so they deserve a second chance, right?

And so, but …
There are certain criminals that don’t want a second chance!
So I’ve composed this ode in honor of those sorts of criminals.
And it goes like this:

I have paid my debt to society
and I pay it again each week
Die, Sucker, Die!

And a makeover artist says:
If they shine their shoes, and buff up their lats
Nobody will know about their past!

And those guys say:
Die, Haberdasher, Die!

And the ladies say:
Whoo-eee! It’s a lot of fun
Fooling around with the reformed ones!

And those guys say:
Die, Pollyanna, die!

And humanitarians say:
Oh, these guys had such rough childhoods
Maybe we can help them with their livelihood

And those guys say:
Die, Goody Two-Shoes, die!

So, every Friday or Saturday night
They give the citizens quite a fright …

You will pay for the miserable way
You’ve treated us! It’s Judgement Day|
Die, Citizen, Die!

Well, I have to say,
I’m just put out by the situation
I’m daunted …
I’m just not wantin’
this reptilian lingo
to linger
any longer

You already know that story!
But what I hear, on a Friday night, Is
Die, Citizen, Die!

…..

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

A Poem by Alice B. Clagett

My gut,
he would tout,
Is loaded
wit’ lead

That I can’t
be without

Why not?
They’d blurt out

And then
he would shout:

I’d rather be blud-
geoned than
take out that slug
and then wince
to the pinch
of a lynch mob’s
cinch

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This poem is fictional in all regards, including, but not limited to characters, events and figures of speech. The place name is also fictional, and the names of people are added for poetic effect, not having to do with anything about their fictional lives …

“THE CLINK OF A REPTILE’S TOES”
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
Soundtrack and Words
11 February 2018

 

There was a fellow in Desperadoville
Who loved to kill for a sexual thrill

A wise guy stopped by who said, “My gosh …
You make your kills with swashbuckling panache!

“I have one request … ‘Cause
These kills make such messes …
Once monthly, finesse this  …

“Then say goodbye
To the townspeople’s sighs,
To their nightmares and cries …
Go and give it a try!”

So he tried this advice,
And at first it seemed nice

But the beat of his heart
Did a Humphrey Bogart
When he practiced that art

And, quick as Jack Robinson,
He ditched that lesson

Day after day, began
Once more rampagin’

One night, drinking liquor,
This hard hitter figured:
“The trouble’s your ticker!

“It’s too fast a racer
I’ll put a pacemaker
Inside it. Then killin’
Won’t be so thrillin’

“Cause when I think ‘hatchets’
My heart just won’t ratchet
Up, due to this gadget.”

So he found a doctor
To make up an order
To purchase the gizmo
To KO his MO

A life of crime
Don’t stop on a dime
It worked for a time

Then the day arrived
When he contrived

A vast panorama …
A homicide drama …

That went off as expected
For he fled, undetected
And savored the deed with espresso

This is far from the norm
He surmised, all forlorn …
My heart didn’t vet the crescendo

He moped for a while
Though it wasn’t his style …

“I’ll have to make hay
In a cold-blooded way,”
He declared: “Easy come, easy go!”

Dear Ones,

Here is more on killing cults, such as the Charles Manson cult, and outlaw gangs. There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I am looking at the beautiful morning sunlight here. Pretty cool, huh? …

A while back I wrote about killing cults … like the Charles Manson cult; those kinds … and outlaw gangs. And I had quite a few observations on that, from the clair stories, and the clair chatter. I just wanted to add to that: It seems to me like the root cause of killing cults and outlaw gangs is that the Soul wounding of the people is such that they are all caught together in their Lower Mental Bodies in a kind of subconscious mini-noosphere. So the actions that they undertake are from the deep subconscious minds of all of them.

And so, the clair chatter that you hear from a killing cult or outlaw gang will always have unconscious mind qualities … such as the idea that there is no Ego involved, for instance.

There may be Egos in the group … the leader Ego, for instance, and his second-in-command Alter Ego, specifically. And then there are all the women. So, say three major Ego categories. But several people may switch back and forth, on the clair stories, acting the role of the leader.

And the same goes for the alter ego leader, the second in command. That might be a wider group of men in the group.

Then, amongst the women, you will find that all the women are treated interchangeably, and are spoken of, on the astral plane, as being the ‘wife’ of the leader.

These subconscious ways of looking at things, evident in the mini-noosphere of a killing cult or outlaw gang, are actually pre-egoic, in a way. They occurred, in the evolution of humankind, prior to the social notion of human beings having rights (that is, separate, individual rights).

Further, in the ‘acting out’ of a killing cult or outlaw gang you will scenarios born of the agglomerated, subconscious minds of all the cult members or outlaws. So you can expect that the behavior of a killing cult or outlaw gang during this transitional period … this Awakening … will reflect … in the astral stories first … and then later, if not checked, in the physical plane … the very deepest subconscious Soul wounding, such as killing scenarios, raping scenarios, or scenarios of physical disfigurement.

  • These scenarios have to do with threats to life itself, and
  • Notions that other people do not have Souls, or do not have human rights, or do not have  individuality

Such scenarios will be undertaken by the total cult …

  • either against outsiders, or if no outsiders are available,
  • against the perceived more inferior members of the cult itself.

So watch out for that. Try to stay clear of those sorts of very deep subconscious gloms. And that will help to ensure your continuing physical presence in the Duality play.

The timelines are such that, when we optimize our timelines, there is always a time when it is appropriate to exit the current incarnation. And this has to do with the next incarnation, and the continuing saga of the multidimensional and multitemporal Soul.

So there you have it: There is a time. There is a timeline and an optimum time for each person to exit the grounded state, and move on to the very next thing in the Soul’s journey.
